Hornets join in social comp

THE Green Hornets will be one of the new teams in this season's Warwick Hockey Association mixed social competition at Queens Park.

Emily Hetherington played junior hockey in Warwick and for the Warwick under-18 representative team in state championships at Murwillumbah.

The Green Hornets recruit played for Duchesne College at the University of Queensland and will play her first game in fours years in the social competition.

Warwick masters premiership-winning hockey captain Gary Millard will be the most experienced player in the team along with Emily's father, Ross Hetherington, who will return to the field for the first time in a decade.

"We have seven or eight players who have committed, but need a couple more blokes," Emily said.

"I am really looking forward to playing on a Thursday night; it is exciting to be lining up on the new surface."

The Green Hornets haven't organised any training sessions; they expect to be like most teams, who turn up and play.

Natalie Lancuba will play her first hockey in the social competition after a lot of football, touch and netball.

Rebecca Wright is organising the competition as well as the Green Hornets team.

She has some team nominations, but needs more for the competition, which starts on October 18 and goes to December 6.

Teams will play six-a-side hockey in 20-minute halves. Two women must be on the field at all times.

Players must be high-school age or older to play. Nominations to Wright 0419 678 507
